The Chartered Shorthand Reporters' Association of Ontario was incorporated in 1891, making it the second oldest association of professional stenographic reporters in North America. The goal at the inception of the association was the same as it is today: To preserve the standards and encourage the development of shorthand writers in the Province of Ontario.
When the CSRAO was incorporated, it was made up entirely of male pen shorthand writers who worked in the courts and in the House of Commons and the Senate. Through the years the CSRAO has helped to shape the profession and has participated at the forefront of technological change in the reporting industry.
